    Samsung Notebook 9 Line-Up Shaping Up

    Samsung Notebook 9 Line-Up Shaping Up

    Last year Samsung came out with a new notebook dubbed the Samsung Notebook 9 laptop. It was a standard thin-and-light design that got a lot of things right, but didn’t contain anything special like a 2-1 design or an HD display. It was simple and to the point.

    Earlier this year the Samsung Pro edition added a folding hinge for 2-in-1 tablet use and a stylus, and next year the company will fully revamp its lineup with four new devices. The new Notebook 9 Pen, which is much like a Surface device, will sport a built-in battery-free S Pen stylus, to go with a thoughtfully designed 2-in-1 hybrid laptop/tablet. The 13-inch devices comes with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 CPU, up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. Better still, it will only weigh 2.2 pounds thanks to its Metal12 magnesium-aluminum alloy shell.

    The three new Samsung Notebook 9 laptops are available in either 13.3 or 15-inch sizes, and they include up to 1TB of storage. The 15-inch version has an option for discrete graphics, but they share the Pen’s CPU and RAM options.

    All of these Samsung Notebook 9 laptops include Windows Hello support, fingerprint scanners and the 9 Pen includes IR scanning for facial recognition, while only the 15-inch has a Thunderbolt port.

    Pricing and release dates are not available as of this writing, but we’re sure CES 2018 will reveal all of the relevant information. They’re due to arrive in the US during Q1.
